Abstact vs Annotated Bibliography
  • One of the most common questions our customers
    ask is the difference between abstract and
    annotated bibliography.
  • This article is written with the purpose to
    discuss the differences between these two
    elements of written papers.

3
Abstract
  • An abstract is supposed to convey information
    about a book or an article.
  • However, abstract should be writing objective
    style as the main purpose is to evaluate.

4
Abstract
  • Such evaluation is provided for readers to help
    them to decide whether the work is relevant for
    their purposes.
  • A perfect abstract is the one that gives maximum
    information in a few words.

5
Elements of an Abstract
  • Full bibliographic information
  • Details about the purpose of the work and its
    scope
  • Information about content in brief
  • Conclusion stating for whom this work can be
    relevant.

6
Annotated Bibliography
  • This short description of a book or an article is
    also called an annotation and characterizes the
    work by its relevance to readers.
  • There are several types of annotated bibliography
    which depend on the content and purpose of
    described works.

7
Annotated Bibliography
  • It is required to begin your annotated
    bibliography with complete citation of the
    literature source.

8
Elements of an Annotated Bibliography
  • The following elements should be included in
    common type annotations

9
1. Relevant background of the author, including
degrees, titles.They might not be included if
the author is extremely well-known.2. Main
purpose of the work. However, try to make your
annotation pretty narrow.3. Bias that you
noticed in the work.
10
4. Reading difficulty and background of the
audience.5. Position of the work in the topic
area and relation to other works.6. Summarizing
sentence.
11
Writing about Reading
  • Writing about reading difficulty is no a
    mandatory element which is included only when the
    audience is specific.
  • For example, you can specify that the work can be
    of interest to scholars but might be difficult to
    understand by average uninformed reader.

12
Writing about Reading
  • When writing your annotated bibliography, make
    sure you dont repeat any words contained in the
    title.
  • Use rewording to present your information and
    describe it the way that an informed person could
    easily infer from the title of the work.

13
Writing about Reading
  • It is recommended to stay relevantly critical and
    provide the information which will help readers
    to understand whether the work could be of any
    interest to them.
  • Critical annotations use the past tense and
    summary annotations use the present tense.

14
Writing about Reading
  • Most common length of annotations is 150 words.
    However, do not exceed the limit in 200 words.
  • Ask your instructor about preferred citations
    that are specified before annotated bibliography.

15
Writing about Reading
  • The most used citations styles are the American
    Psychological Association (APA) and Modern
    Language Association (MLA).
  • You may get this information from your instructor
    or your handbook.
